Orlando is one of the entertainment capitals in America, and it’s not simply because of the world-class theme parks we have. Whatever activity you are looking to do, Orlando is sure to have it, and lots of it. This is especially true of the go-kart scene. There are several tracks in the city, but as the weather is beginning to heat up again, you can’t beat the air-conditioned indoor circuits. Here are 3 of the best indoor kart racing locations that every speed-lover should check out.
I-Drive NASCAR Indoor Kart Racing
Orlando’s original upscale indoor go-kart facility, I-Drive NASCAR features a challenging ¼ mile track for all drivers over 55” tall. Zoom through eight turns including hairpins, a chicane, and a “Senna S” in a race that is more than 8 minutes long. After the race, grab a drink and a bite to eat at the Grandstand Restaurant, which overlooks the whole track. After this, head over to the bowling alley, shoot some billiards, or play arcade games. It’s a place with fun for the whole family.
If you’re looking for pure racing, head over to K1 Speed. They have two different circuits, one for classic racing and another for more drift-heavy racing. Their electric karts accelerate extremely quickly and can reach up to a staggering 45 mph. Skill and precision go far here as racers receive their lap times at the end of each circuit. Compete against your friends and family, and see how your times stack up against course records.
Andretti Indoor Karting & Games
Andretti is probably one of the most unique experiences in Orlando. Their world-class track is the world’s longest indoor track, complete with steep elevation changes and even banked turns. This track is truly a game-changer from the more basic flat tracks, but this is just the beginning of what Andretti has to offer. Their facility also features a boutique bowling alley, an arcade, 3D simulators, a high-ropes course above the arcade, and laser tag. The whole family could spend all day at Andretti and still not exhaust all the possibilities.
